Euro Qualification


Recommended Posts

Someone seems to ask about this every other day at the moment....maybe we should sticky this:

 

  • 4th gets you into the 2nd qualifying round, 1st leg 16th July, 2nd leg 23rd July
  • 3rd gets you into the 3rd qualifying round, 30th July/6th august
  • Cup Winners gets you into the 4th qualifying round (final round before the groups), 20/27th August
     

 

NB: Proposed SPL start 8th August (or 15th if Burley gets his way)

 

 

Cup Loser Rule:

If the cup winner of a country also qualifies for the Champions League, then the losing team of the cup final is qualified for the UEFA Cup. If both cup finalists qualify for the Champions League, then an additional team based on league position will be qualified. However, the losing cup finalist does not get the UEFA Cup cup-winner spot, but is treated as a league entrant. The 'cup- winner' spot of that country goes to the team with the highest league position. In some countries (England and France) the last league entrant position is given to the League Cup Winner.

So third still leaves us with two qualifying rounds to go?

 

Yes, unless the huns win the cup in which case:

 

  • Cup Losers gets you into the 2nd qualifying round, 1st leg 16th July, 2nd leg 23rd July
  • 4th gets you into the 3rd qualifying round, 30th July/6th august
  • 3rd gets you into the 4th qualifying round (final round before the groups), 20/27th August

Ah, we'll just need to win the cup then.

Bugger this, surely we can still get 1st or 2nd in the League?  :thumbsup:

Does 3rd place not get straight into the group stages ?

 

On 26th Feb there was something in one of the papers saying "Uefa has confirmed that three Scottish teams will qualify for next season's inaugural Europa League - including either the Scottish Cup winners or runners-up with 3rd place in the SPL going straight into the Group Stages "

I'm sure I read that too. The path into the group stages was made easier by Rangers and Aberdeen's performance in the UEFA Cup last season and Ra Shellick in the Champions League in same season. Pretty sure that kicks in for the forthcoming European competitions.

Does anyone from any league go directly into the group stages?

 

If you check the links in the original post it doesn't look like it.  I know this site isn't an official UEFA site but it is generally recognised as the most accurate site on the go about european competitions.

 

From the second link (http://www.xs4all.nl/~kassiesa/bert/uefa/access2009.html) it would appear that the holders are the only ones that get straight into the group stage, the other teams coming from the 4th Qualifying Round (37 teams) and from the chumps league qualifying (10 teams)

Although bare in mind that if the scum beat Falkirk in the cup final (what ever that is) then, if I understand the rules correctly we would go into the 3rd qualifying round instead

 

Aye, forgot you'd already stated that in this thread when i read about it in the ScotonSun.  It confirms the 4th placed team would go into the 3rd qualifying round, 30th July/6th August.

At least we would start the season with proper competitive matches already played tho which cant be bad

 

Although we could also be out of Europe a la huns before the season starts right enough

You don't have to word it that way, tlg1903.

 

You don't have to say you want Rangers to win. You can safely get away with simply saying "I want United to lose" :thumbsup:

 

We are dammed if they do and dammed if they dont  :hammer:

 

At least if the huns win and we win theres europe to look to and (equally importantly  ;)) i get 20 notes of an arab,  would ease the blow a bit
